Foil tent heating with animal heat

Published on May 20, 2014 um 16:53

Summary of your idea

I have an agricultural enterprise wich is dealing with growing plants and fattening animals (in stable). I will start to install foil tents and growing vegetables during the whole year. For this I have to heat the tents, so I figured out a new conception of heating (completely MY, unique iedea). The tents are going to be next to the farm of my brother and the hot air wich is going out from the stable (the animals need fresh air) will be the base of my tent heating system (attachment pictures).

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This project is totally sustainable. I dont have to use energy source for the heating, because I use the animlal heat wich is coming out from the stable (22 celsius). With this solution I dont contanimants the environment and the same time save a lot of money (I dont have to pay for heating). Finally I will have less costs than the competitors and I can produce out of the season time (the selling prices will be higher).

Plans for implementation and sustainability

My recent enterprise is able to finance the project, but in this year I submitted an application (application for young entrepreners in the EU) and I would like to finance the project, partly from this source. My business modell based on more activities wich are related to each other: animals-plants-foil tent. Step by step I develope my enterprise. Collaborators: my brother (he is the head of the animal farm) and I.
